How To Size Bib Overalls
So you’ve made the right decision by upping your fan game and buying some Game Bibs. Congratulations! The last thing you want is a pair that doesn’t fit properly, so we wanted to give you a few tips on how to size your overalls properly. Since bib overalls cover your entire body they do not fit the same as a pair of jeans and there are some sizing factors to keep in mind.
How To Measure for Bib Overalls
First and foremost, your waist size in bibs is going to be bigger. For men, that tends to add 2-6 inches to your current waist size in jeans, especially if your belly hangs over your pant waist. For women, the general rule is to add 23 to the Women’s size. For example, a Women’s Size 8 would convert to a 31” waist size in bib overalls. For an accurate measurement, use a tape measure and measure around the natural waist.
Take a tape measure and measure under the arms around the fullest part of the bust. While you’re doing this, make sure the tape measure stays level and comfortably loose around your torso.
The inseam sizing for Game Bibs runs a little longer which allows us to accommodate more customers. If you’re on the taller side don’t let our inseam discourage you from buying a pair. With the adjustments that can be made at the shoulder straps we’ve fitted customers as tall as 6’8”. If you are on the shorter side the longer inseam can always be tailored and many women actually like to roll up the pant leg of the bibs.
You’ll find our detailed bib overalls sizing guide at the top of our website if you need more information about our sizes. If you have any additional questions on properly sizing bib overalls, don’t hesitate to send us a message or give us a call. We want you looking your best on game day!
What Size Bib Overalls Do I Need?
We get this question a lot and there's never an exactly right answer. It truly depends on your measurements. Once you've got your overalls measurements above you'll need to make sure that you understand how adult overalls are supposed to fit. They're not designed to fit like a pair of tailored pants.
Think about your Game Bibs like a non-winter pair of snowboarding or skiing pants. You'll want them to have a little bit of roominess in the waist, chest and knees so that there's plenty of space for movement. In terms of the length, your overalls should come just to the ankle. You don't want them to be too baggy or short, otherwise, you've got an ill-fitting pair.
So, now that you've read through our helpful and thought-provoking, you should be one step closer to getting a pair of Game Bibs that fit great. And if you're still asking yourself, "what size bibs do I need," or "how should my overalls fit," you might want to start back at the top, or just get in touch with us!
